Dinner Party Under The Stars

I got a napkin as inspiration for this cake and it was really fun to do.  The instructions were to make it look elegant but not like a wedding cake.  I hope we succeeded.  The napkin had greens and tans and golds and then these bright pink stripey flowers.  It's hard to see in the photo but there is a gold stencil on the green that is a nature theme with branches, flowers, and birds.  The beads around the bottom of each tier looked like little tiny roses up close and we painted them and the butterflies and dragonflies with gold.  The flowers were originally one flower with 2 layers but then I ended up liking it better as two flowers with only one layer.  I LOVED this cake!
